Just about every city and town across the nation has animal shelters, where you can choose a loving, caring pet that needs a new home. As French artist, writer, and film maker, Jean Cocteau once said, I love cats because I love my home and after a while they become its visible soul.” Minou with her sweet, gentle presence has truly become or home’s visible soul”. Adoptions are first come, first serve” with an approved application.
As an emergency placement partner of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the ARLGP serves as a safety net for animals rescued from inhumane conditions. We take in dogs of all breeds, from all circumstances, and work with them until they are adoptable.
It is only important to make sure that you’re getting a pet legally from the right animal shelter or rescue groups. Actually, senior citizens, who are great pet adoption candidates, actually need less medical attention. Dogs – all pets, actually – are lifetime commitments.
If a family is looking for a certain breed of dog or cat, they no longer have to visit the shelters to have a look around. A picture is worth a thousand words, we know, and it’s proven than better pictures get animals adopted faster. The introduction to your other pets may NOT go as planned…maybe the ‘new kid’ starts humping all of your dogs, marking your furniture, growling, etc.
If you’re going to call yourself a dog breeder, do it right and take complete responsibility for the dogs you bring into this world, not just for the first eight weeks of their lives. And do not forget that one of the best adoptions is the older, wiser, already-potty trained pet.
